Teeth Cleaning in Worcester can help ensure the health and beauty of your smile.

Professional teeth cleaning, or dental hygiene appointments, are an important component of any good oral health care routine. When you come to Common Park Dental for teeth cleaning (also called dental cleaning), the hygienist focuses on removing plaque—a clear, sticky film that is filled with bacteria—and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. You can remove plaque with regular brushing and flossing, but removing tartar can only be accomplished during a professional cleaning.

What happens when you don’t schedule teeth cleanings to remove tartar? This chalky material begins to buildup, especially along the gum line. At first, tartar is tooth-colored, but as the buildup accumulates the color changes to brown and then black. If allowed to remain on your teeth, the bacteria in tartar begin to attack your gums and the underlying bone that supports your teeth. This is periodontal or gum disease.

During your teeth cleaning, however, tartar is cleared away and the surfaces of your teeth are smoothed so bacteria are less likely to stick. In this way, each dental cleaning is an important preventive measure that helps ensure the health and beauty of your smile.

Teeth Cleaning by You

While your dentist in Worcester recommends that you and each member of your family have at least two professional teeth cleanings every six months, there is another important component to your oral hygiene—you. During the time in between visits to our office, the health of your smile depends on your ability to properly brush and floss your teeth. Here are some tips from the dentists and their team at Common Park Dental:
